St Mary’s Playgroup has been serving Woodbridge and the surrounding villages for the past 40 years, with daily morning and afternoon sessions in a safe, happy and secure environment.

We’re a ‘not for profit’ small charity, run by a fantastic team of committee whilst dedicated and caring staff operate.

Children enjoy a wide range of activities, supervised by qualified staff that also have a vast experience of children with additional needs. We have a secure private garden. We have strong links to St Mary’s Church of England Primary School, which is located next door, and we have access to their large playing field. 

We offer extended opening hours between 8am-6pm and accept 2 to 4 year olds and all government funding, e.g. 30 hour funding.

We have a recent Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ in some areas.

We would love to show you around our playgroup!


Our foyer area where children love finding their names and hanging their coats/bags on their labelled pegs, which they have a matching one off to put this drink in.
Imaginative play often occurs in our home corner whether it is playing different occupations or being a parent.

Children can enjoy some quiet time looking at and reading books in our Reading Garden.
There’s toys a plenty in our cleverly labelled toy baskets, so the children can see exactly which toys are in which boxes .

Time to make memories in our exciting outside area, which includes a climbing frame with a slide for little explorers and adventurers…

…a planting section for those little green fingers…

…an outdoor music making section for the future musicians…

…our mud kitchen area for budding chefs…
